    Which battery: 12v or HV? Trouble lights have trouble codes that will tell you what's going on. Need to get them read. Check the 12v voltage and connections.

    cutting off is not usually a 12v problem, but maybe connections?

    As mentioned above, have to get the error codes read. Could be a failed inverter coolant pump, and the hybrid system is shutting down when the inverter temp gets too warm. Or low coolant in the inverter coolant system.
